Not trying to be confrontational, but what are the legal implications of 
two employees of the same company getting together to discuss an open 
source project?  And, here's probably an easier question: what are the 
legal implications of working on open source at all?  I was always under 
the impression my employer owned every idea I had...

This is not a troll, it seems that unless you have specifically signed a 
contract with your employer permitting this a judge will likely rule the 
other way.
